Hey Blue, something's wonky with today's OotB message board layout - - it's so wide it won't fit w/o side scrolling.
That's not a problem with the board, but with the obscenely long link posted by Hump in #7. It only wraps at the question mark, and the remainder is too long so you'll get the horizontal scrollbar.

Thanks for all the nice birthday wishes. Blue wasn't joking when he said things are hectic for me now (I'm preparing to move to a new house with my girlfriend, all while trying to keep up with news, file releases and forums ;)), so it took a while to even read up on this thread, but it sure is appreciated.

43. Re: Gone Gold... Dec 26, 2002, 20:48  Xymph 
 
Remember when that site "Gone Gold" used to tell us when games were going to go gold, and then release? It's too bad the guy behind it all had to get sick,
"Sick" doesn't describe Rich's situation adequately. Seriously disabled since before he started the site, and recently nearly dying several times from asthma attacks would be closer. But fortunately he survived all that, and is currently in the process of moving house and getting settled in. I trust that once all that is behind him, his daily updates will return.

now they haven't updated in months, makes me sad.
Actually, fortunately Rich has some friends providing regular updates on other topics, but yeah, I do miss the gold/release info very much as well. Let's hope for the best, shall we?

That's the Blue's News logo used in the winter of '98
You are repeating yourself. But the logo is repeated indeed, being used in the holiday seasons of 2000, 2001 and this year. What's your point?

This is the same Quake 2 Blue's News logo that was used in the winter of '98.
Nice try, only two years off.

5. Re: Wow Dec 17, 2002, 14:55  Xymph 
 
Seriously, isn't this game old news though? I think I remember hearing something about it ages ago... must have blown it out as chunks, cuz I've forgotten now.
Yup, the game was announced this Spring, today's announcement is actually just the publishing deal.
http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=viewthread&threadid=34213
Although, the bit later on in the press release about the creature designer sounds intriguing... maybe some pictures..
Are available on this very site.

I want LockOn Modern Air Combat
There's a Lock On MAC trailer from the same event as well, but it's much shorter. You can find it at the official sites, http://www.il2sturmovik.com/ and http://www.lo-mac.com/ (which are the source for the IL2 trailer too, in fact).

I know this isn't the right thread for this discussion, but since Bluesnews doesn't seem to follow the game much, I figured I would mention it.
Not sure why you missed the 27 stories that Blue's News has done on the game since it was unveiled on September 05, 2001, but if you do a exact text search for "Oblivion Lost" (the original title) you should get all of them. That's basically all the news that has surfaced on the game so far, both during and after my term as news editor here.

News Comments > MoH AA Spearhead Patch
8. Re: 55meg? Dec 6, 2002, 17:24  Xymph 
 
Why don't these game companies give us some info about what's changed in the patch. Why is that so hard?
EA just sent us the list of changes:
http://www.3dgamers.com/dl/games/medalofhonor/Missions/mohaash_patch_20_to_211.txt

I find it interesting that a patch can come out and be "mirrored" on multiple sites, but the "Official Site" has no mention of the patch or the patch itself.
The patch was released by EA Europe on their ftp server, and since they're on a different timezone than EA Pacific, there is no update on the official site yet, but that should happen later today.

3. Re: Multiplayer? Dec 6, 2002, 17:14  Xymph 
 
I suspect the Readme included in the demo is actually just the same one that comes with the full game (see the Installation section for example). But the essential part is that the demo contains just the Prelude and "The Prelude is designed as a purely single-player experience." i.e. there's indeed no multiplayer.

38. Re: patch catastrophe Nov 27, 2002, 21:49  Xymph 
 
Well, when I replaced the patch and synced the mirrors, the Utah server didn't pick it up and kept serving the old patch. First time that's ever happened, so I'm still investigating that, but in the mean time I disabled the Utah link and you can try our Indiana, California or Australia mirrors for the correct file. Sorry again, this is not our lucky day apparently.

32. Re: Workaround? 3D Gamers' Patch BAD! Nov 27, 2002, 18:58  Xymph 
 
It appears EA initially sent us a beta version of the patch, which didn't allow online play. We have now replaced it with the correct patch. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Ubi Soft has turned around and given 3D Gamers and other US sites permission as yet to host the demo, so download away.

I bought a copy in Europe and the patch doesn't work anyone know where I can get the patch for the UK version
That hasn't been released yet. The developers site (http://www.artworks.co.uk/home.htm) carries only US and German patches, with "Europe (except Germany) Coming Soon".

Methinks 3DG is just getting hammered again.
Yup, the myriad of releases over the past two weeks, with the Mafia demo just now taking the most popular spot (pretty amazing for a game this old :)) cause our regular servers to be maxed out all the time. I've enabled an extra, fast mirror for this file now.

...as to how far along the game is. It is (unofficially) projected to ship out on 11/19/02, ...
Not anymore: http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=viewthread&threadid=38102
...but I am wondering if this is another game that might/will be pushed back to early '03.
Has already been, then.
